The epicFlashControl is an ASP.NET server control used to easily embed Flash objects within your ASP.NET projects. As a tool in your Visual Studio toolbox, it's as easy as just dragging and dropping the control onto your ASP.NET web page and going to work!
By using the epicFlashControl, embedded Flash resources can be easily created, controlled and manipulated directly through your .NET code. The epicFlash control is essential for ASP.NET projects which require the use of Flash files.
With FlashVars support, the epicFlashControl allows developers to pass data from ASP.NET server side code to Flash objects seamlessly and without additional server requests. FlashVars, and all other properties may also be data-bound, making it easy to integrate your Flash objects into your ASP.NET projects.

Hmm... Here on ASP.NET it states that the control is free but when you get to the host site it states that the control costs $$$. Oh sure, it's free to use on your development machine but heck of a lot that does when it's time to publish your application.
Plus the control does not allow the use of .flv files.

For a long time I've been looking for a clean way to embed Flash content and Flash banner ads into my pages.
This is an extremely useful utility & I know I'll be using it often. 5 stars.

I've given the epicFlashControl a try in a few ASP.NET projects using Visual Studio .NET 2003 and have had great success. The documentation is pretty good. I love the FlashVars support - great idea!
When I first tried to download, the link was down, but it's live now... sooo 5 stars for the component, 2 stars for the dead link!
